Dave to all )
I will never forget the time atnight just after passing the
Rickenbacker Bridge southbound on the GREBE "SEASCOUT" when Doug Quillen
called the bridge requesting an ok so his team of engineers could do a valve job
on one of the Packard engines.
He was aware that it would be best if we
had 2 engines with which to operate in Biscayne especially with the central Featherbead
Banks 3 hours away and our draft of 6 feet. I couldn't believe it when Doug and
his team completed the the valve job, cranked up the engine and wow we really
noticed the difference topside with the steering and additional speed through
Doug really offered his experience, care and concern for the
scouts in amost personal manner. He was one of the best Scout Leaders I have ever
seen during my entire time working with Scouts.....Gotta go for now...
